Jason Sudeikis and Jay Pharoah were back as Gov. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama for round two of the presidential debates in the opening of this week's Saturday Night Live. SNL's version of the debate was a bit more contentious than the real one to say the least, and they managed to get a shot in on Willard's son Tagg, who told a radio station last week that he would have liked to take a swing at the President for heaven forbid pointing out that his dad lies like a rug.

They also mocked Romney for wanting to bully moderator Candy Crowley, had some fun with the so-called "undecided voters" from Long Island and their questions and Tom Hanks made a cameo appearance with a one word question for the candidates.
